Why does the university need a Scientific Heritage Fund?

Heidelberg University houses countless treasures that must be protected and preserved. They include collections of artefacts, the famous manuscripts of the University Library and impressive courtyards or gardens such as the Botanical Garden.

With your contribution to the Scientific Heritage Fund you can help preserve these fascinating treasures and make them available to the wider public. The fund offers Heidelberg University the chance to fill funding gaps and tackle projects like restoring exhibits or redeveloping historical buildings and facilities.
